Trends for Stylishly Cool Days

3 MIN. READ

The weather remains cold, and thoughts of mulled wine, hot cocoa and dressing stylishly for cool days and colder nights abound. Men's winter trends for 2021 include old standbys such as cozy sweaters, but they also take a page from the retro look of leather blazers. From classic to colorful, this season holds fashion flare to suit every taste.

Classic look

The classic look is always in style. For cool days, try an oxford cloth dress shirt in classic white or go for a pop of color with brilliant blue. Contrary to popular belief, not every button-down shirt is an oxford cloth shirt. Because the strands are woven together instead of individually, oxford cloth shirts are heavier than other dress shirts without looking bulky.

Pair the shirt with a stylishly cool ¼ zip merino wool sweater and some wool cashmere pants to be ready to go from the office to a night out in no time. Complete the look with a dress-length wool overcoat to stay toasty.

Adding color

Nothing warms a chilly winter day like a bright pop of color. Blue, yellow and red rank high as color trends this season. A finely-tailored jacket in plum or navy with red window-pane striping paired with classic gray, black, brown or navy keeps away the chill mentally and physically.

Sweaters provide warmth on cold days and the opportunity to add that much-needed color. Whether it’s a coral alpaca or a berry merino pullover, a warm wool sweater in a cheerful color goes a long way to chase away the winter blues.

For more formal occasions, adding a tie can bring both color and texture to an otherwise plain black suit or simple sweater and slacks combination.
